BD Vs SL Dream 11 Prediction: Beijing Ducks Vs Shanxi Loongs. Beijing Ducks sitting on the cusp of moving into the coveted top 4 spots in CBA 20.
Ever since the 2019-20 edition of CBA has restarted, Beijing Ducks have emerged as one of the most dynamic and diminutive teams in the league. On a five game winning spin, the club has ended up making massive strides to move all the way into 5th position.
The club made for a ruthless and relentless juggernaut at the moment, a side which has grabbed teams by the scruff of their necks to pull off luscious results to their name. The performances have overwhelmed with the team bridging the gap between themselves and a spot in the quarter-finals with panache.
The 91-64 win over Jilin the last time around was a testament of how clinical the side have been since the league has made a return to the arena, a performance which saw the side dole out a complete and well rounded display. It’s a performance they’ll be looking to emulate when they take on 8th placed Shanxi and with it maraud their way into the top 4.
It wasn’t until a long time back that Shanxi found themselves in the spot where Beijing Ducks were. The club has however languished and waned in the back two weeks with the side being defeated in two straight games including a complete 104-71 collapse against Xinjiang.
The side’s dwindling form has been due to a lacklustre and horrid defence, a rut which will see them be put down by a Beijing Ducks side functioning at the best of its capabilities.

Dream 11 Picks
Our Dream 11 side begins with the pick of Hanjun Chang. Across the course of the league, the point guard has been a consistent and dependable name, a player who has incurred for his side performances which have entailed not only turnovers but crucial points from the deep as well.
Chou Yi-Hsiang from Beijing Ducks will make for our cheap pick of the day. At a measly 5.5 credits, the player was too good to let go with his ability to open the zone and shoot tyres seeing him register the 12 points for his side the last time around.
With 6 points and the 6 assists the last time around, Shuo Fang showed why he’s held in such high esteem. The player is a pivotal name for the Ducks, someone who has cascades a change of position with his ball handling capabilities, ones which have seen him come up with quick break points for the club.
A double-double of 12 points and 12 rebounds for Xiaochaun Di will see the small forward nail his place in our side for the day. The player has utilised his crossovers and handles to shoot offhanded shots and latch onto the second chance points to ensure a high success rate in the side’s attacking travails.
And someone who came up with a double-double as well in that fixture was Ekpe Udoh. The power forward regaled his side’s ardent supporters in a subliminal sortie, one which saw him sully the side as he left their defenders sullied with his insatiable ability to fill his shoes with points seeing him accrue 23 points.
Lin Chang will be partnered up by him courtesy of his ability to send down points in the paint with his floating jump points.
We finally compensate for the names from Shanxi in this ambit of our Dream 11 side with an electric and flair filled partnership being instilled in our side. In the meticulous Zhaobao Ge, the side has a player who is able to control the centre of the court with his ball handling abilities.
Pengfei Yan links up with him after the player waged a lone battle in both the dockets of the game for the side the last time around. He pulled off an imperious 16-10 performance, a showing which saw him transcend on the game and transpire a truly wordclass display.
A gargantuan 23 point performance sees us make Udoh our star player while Di is the vice-captain.
